Fussball Frolics – Gurgler’s Bundesliga Weekly

We’ve been accused of being far too English-centric with our Football coverage, so we thought we’d get as far away from the English game as possible.

FOOTBALL - NEWS RESULTS HEADER a

The Bundesliga had a weekend off for teams to play in the Champions League with mixed results all round.  Although Borussia Dortmund secured a scrappy win in Rd 14 against Hoffenheim, they could only manage a draw against Anderlecht in their pool match on the weekend.  Why is this significant?  With Dortmund sitting on the wrong end of the Table, they needed to boost the morale of the black and gold faithful.  They did this by pouring beers at the Christmas party!

Getting the fans drunk may work for a few rounds, lets hope the Christmas cheer continues against 15th place Ho Ho Hertha Berlin

FOOTBALL - UPCOMING HIGHLIGHTS

 

The game of the week though is Bayer 04 Leverkusen versus Borussia Monchengladbach.  They are equal 4th with Leverkusen ahead on goal difference.  My tip is Leverkusen with the home advantage. Also the Hoffenheim/Eintracht Frankfurt game should be a christmas cracker.  Certainly a Kenny Calendar special, with the nose broken in 3 places.  I’m steering clear of it in my multi.  I hear the edelweiss asking, ‘what about 1st vs 3rd’?? Well Bayern Munchen are playing out of their skins in both the league and champions league. Augsburg seem to be running on borrowed time to be in 3rd.  I have the HP sauce ready to eat these words if the improbable happens.  The rest of the games arent worth my royal time reporting on.

 

As for Bundesliga 2, they don’t have to worry about the Champions League so it has been business as usual.  Ingoldstadt and Kaiserslautern are firming up their automatic promotion chances, but they are playing each other this weekend in a 1st vs 2nd battle for the ages.  Not since the germanic tribes took on caesar has the Audi Sportpark seen a bigger contest.  If Ingolstadt win, they will just extend their lead at the top, but with Karlsruher SC (3rd) like to be defeat TSV 1860 Munich (16), the german red devils will lose their second spot.  So you could say that one game will determine the whole season.  Or not

About Klaus Dutchmann 3 Articles

Count Dutchmann was born in Wankendorf in 1975 to the noble house of Schauenburg. His family lineage stems from the County of Holstein-Kiel, one of the oldest in greater Germany. Being an only child to Klaus von Dutchmann II and Inga Kochstuffen he was privately educated and groomed for his title from birth. Training that was unfortunately needed earlier than anyone anticipated, when his parents were victims of the Great Engel Disaster of 1989, when residents of Wankendorf were unawares the family were playing the popular role playing game, and proceeded to sentence them to death by Scaphism without trial.

Thrust into his new role and needing to reassert his family’s honour, he poured a substantial amount of his inheritance into the local Fussball team, Holstein Kiel. The side was a powerhouse in the Northern Germany league until the Bundesliga was formed, when all of the talented players from the area were drafted into the bigger clubs. Having slipped into the 4th division, Count Dutchmann saw an opportunity to get his citizens back in favour. After restoring the stadium to its former glory, he then convinced some of the home grown talent to stay in the region, rather heading to one of the larger cities. His vision, rather, investment, paid off with Holstein Kiel winning the Regionallliga Nord in 2013.
